Personally, I wish they wouldn't

Tell us the heat index, that is. It only makes you feel worse.

Happily, we here in Maryland are experiencing a break in the weather, thanks to a cold front that was preceded by one of those cinematic storms. You know the ones I mean: One minute it's still, close, even claustrophobic in the way 95 degree weather at 100 percent humidity is; the next a ferocious wind starts blowing through, picking up branches and other debris and you begin to feel drops of water, then the sky goes dark and bam! sheets of water start coming down. I watched the storm from the partial shelter of my balcony. It was exhilarating I tell you. Made me want to perform a dance in thanksgiving to the rain god.
